Oh Madge, honeymuffin, we love you…
But come on. Have a tid bit of sensitivity!
As part of Madonna's GLORIOUS MDNA show, the musical Queen comes out on stage with many a gun and pretends to shoot various people, including her 'lover'.
So, you would think that for her Thursday show in Denver, Colorado — the state where 13 people were slaughtered by a crazed gunman this summer — Madge would have the sense to axe the number, or at least replace it with something more appropriate to her audience.
But nay, the queen of controversy did NOT change her act, and pissed off many a Madge-fan because of her actions!
"We’re dancing and all of a sudden people started realizing what the song was. We all just stood there. Everybody who was around me all had shock on their face. I heard a lot of ‘wows.’"
Denver sportscaster Peter Burns — who lost someone close in the massacre — recalls:
"You could see people kinda looking at each other. I heard the word ‘Colorado,’ you know, ‘Aurora,’ ‘shooting.’ You could hear people talking about it and it was little bit unsettling. I saw two or three people get up and grab their stuff and actually leave their seats."
Of course, Madge's spokeslady Liz Rosenberg defends Madonna's decision, stating:
"It’s like taking out the third act of Hamlet."
HA! YEP, Liz just compared Madonna's show to a Shakespeare play.
As much as we LOVE Madonna… that's f*cking rediculous!
Ah well, we hope Madonna's gun-play didn't upset people TOO much! We'd hate to think a bringer of such joy could also bring about such extreme sadness.
